AES Energy Storage and Siemens, which between them have delivered 500MW of energy storage worldwide already, will target 160 different countries and build a 400MWh battery system in California through new joint venture Fluence.

The second and final instalment in Energy-Storage.News' blog on the Aliso Canyon energy storage procurement takes a look at some of the most impressive projects in the deployment, as well as what this all means for the future of the industry.
US-based Storage provider AES Energy Storage has made significant expansions away from established markets into relatively untapped regions across the globe.
